In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.
The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.
The Media Line, the American news agency covering the Middle East, is proud to present our dynamic new online experience in journalism.
As one of the first contextual American news sources established 20 years ago, we opened the gateway to coverage of the region through our team of seasoned journalists. We were the region’s first multi-media site and the first to create a Mideast blog registry.
Once again, The Media Line is proud of leading and has created a personalized experience in news coverage for you, our loyal readers.
We believe journalism is vital and must be held to its original purpose. So we have separated our news wells and our important voices from the streets.
We present Mideast Streets, a shout-out from the streets of the region in multi-media format from photos to videos, events to happenings, protests to innovations and a cross section of the region’s most cogent blogs.
We invite you to become part of the conversation.
Our acclaimed Mideast Daily News, created by Michael Friedson, will remain a free service of The Media Line and will continue to be the “go-to” place for terse, truthful and timely reporting.
Our exciting reworked Mideast Mindset section brings you the news from the Arab and Israeli media in their own words and thoughts.
The Media Line was created to bring critical, contextual news stories—always sourced to reach the highest standards of journalism.
The Media Line is independent and non-profit -- not affiliated with any government, NGO or political position.
We look forward to bringing you many new, cutting edge and engaging features.
The Media Line building upon its original Mideast Blog Registry creates a marketplace of ideas and thoughts.
